COSET Graduate Achievement Scholarship

The College of Science and Engineering Technology (COSET) Graduate Achievement Scholarship is a $1000 competitive scholarship awarded to students demonstrating outstanding academic progress in a COSET master’s program.

To be considered for the COSET Graduate Achievement Scholarship, a student must be enrolled full-time in a master’s program in the College of Science and Engineering Technology and have an SHSU graduate GPA. Students who are already receiving a scholarship as a bonus to their graduate assistantship (generally, those students for whom Fall 2020 will be their first or second semester in a COSET graduate program and who have been awarded a graduate assistantship), are not eligible for the scholarship.  Certain exceptions are permitted; questions regarding eligibility should be directed to Anne Gaillard (argaillard@shsu.edu).

Complete applications require:

  1. a  ½-page personal statement from the applicant (that includes the applicant’s Sam ID) describing their academic progress toward the degree, including planned graduation date, and progress on the thesis or capstone project (where applicable), and
  2. a letter of evaluation from the applicant’s major advisor or graduate program coordinator describing the applicant’s progress toward the degree and overall performance in the graduate program.

Applicants must email their personal statement as a Word or pdf document to Anne Gaillard (argaillard@shsu.edu) with Graduate Achievement Scholarship in the subject line by 5:00 pm on the day of the deadline.

The letter of evaluation must be emailed directly from the applicant’s major advisor or graduate program coordinator to Anne Gaillard (argaillard@shsu.edu) by 5:00 pm on the day of the deadline.

The application deadline for the Fall scholarship is July 1st, and the application deadline for the Spring scholarship is December 1st.
